Hopwood Hall College achieve over 95% recycling levels with B&M Trade Waste service.
B&M Waste Services have been working with Hopwood Hall College who offer a wide range of courses and apprenticeships for school leavers in the borough of Rochdale. Their aim is to provide quality education and training to learners while ensuring they achieve their individual, educational and employment goals.
Hopwood College pride themselves on quality education and support and are now wanting to implement that same quality towards their recycling. As a recycling-ledcarbon neutral company B&M Waste Services conducted an initial site audit to asses the current waste streams and then suggested improvements that could be made to increase their recycling levels.
Since the audit B&M have introduced several recycling bins to the college, including glass, food, cardboard and general waste, as well as this over bin posters have been supplied to remind users what waste goes in to what bin. Each bin then goes to a designated recycling plant apart from the general waste which goes straight to a Refuse Derived Fuel facility. RDF is part of B&M Waste Services zero to landfill policy, the waste that would have usually gone to landfill goes to our RDF facility based in Trafford Park, Manchester. The waste is baled and then sent to a combined heat and power plant to create energy for the local area. This is all recorded on an environmental report which shows Hopwood Hall College exactly how much of their waste has been recycled.
Hopwood Hall College have now achieved over 95% in their recycling levels through the segregation of their waste streams.
